Attraction details
Recommended length of visit: More than 3 hours
Owner description: This is a full day outside the chaos of Marrakech to discover Moroccan and Berber culture. After a 9am pickup from your hotel we head up towards the mighty Atlas Mountains taking scenery roads. First stop is the local weekly farmers market, described as a colorful and lively experience where besides the usual fruits, veggies and meat stalls you also have the hairdresser, dentist, chiropractor. If you fancy a camel ride we can stop at a trusted place where after the ride we share a mint tea under a Berber tent. Then in the next valley we visit the women organ oil cooperative to discover how this special nut from Morocco is processed. The cooperative also provide living wages for single women.Then we carry on driving on various mountains roads,stopping whenever you want and having the chance to distribute school furniture or small items of clothing to local children. Lunchtime is spent at a Berber family house for an organic lunch often voted as the best one from the holidays .

Perfect excursion, great personal service. Authentic and Incredible food. We had thick cloud cover so Try to plan your trip with no cloud cover but it doesn't spoil the day if the weather is iffy. Thanks to Adil and his team and best of luck with your great business

We did this trip recently (December 2014) and it was great all around. Adil came to pick us up in our hotel and was sharp on time. We weren't but he was happy to wait until we were ready. On the way, Adil talked us through the day and told us many facts and stories about Marrakesh and Morocco in general. Very interesting and entertaining. We stopped at a first market and that wasn't the best part of the trip really but interesting (that's just my point of view and a lot of people seemed to have loved this part of the trip). Then we did some camel ride and that was great! The lunch was absolutely amazing! On the way back, we asked him to stop at Jardin Majorelle instead of our hotel and he did it very nicely!
Very happy about everything. All in all very happy about his company and friendliness! :)

We read on the internet that you can find the same kind of trip by renting a car and a chauffeur for far less money. However, it wouldn't include the lunch and Adil was so friendly that the additional money was totally worth it. :)

Would highly recommend it.

Perfect communication from the start from Adil, we met him at lunch and he was really professional and well spoken. Adil 2 arrived sharp at time agreed, was kind and friendly all the way during the trip, gave lots of insight about surrounds, locals etc.
It was really relaxing day and lunch at Berber family was one of the greatest tagines we had in Marroco. Also setting on the terrace overlooking mountains and small tables and carpets to enjoy the lunch were all really enjoyable.

The communication with Adil was excellent prior to the day itself. Recent weather had meant rivers bursting their banks and bridges being swept away, so there was some trepidation as to whether the tour would actually take place. Advil understood this and we kept in close contact during my stay.

I was a sole traveller and booked the tour as such. Ya Ya collected me from my RIad promptly at 9am and I enjoyed his narrative as well as the stops at the small market, Argan cooperative and Berber family for lunch. The views are amazing, and timed right as snow had arrived on the higher mountains earlier in the week. We stopped as needed for photos and nothing was too much hassle for Ya Ya. Chocolates and kids clothes were well received by the Berber children and brought a smile to all.

I'd happily book with Adil and his company again for further excursions should I return to Marrakech in future.

As a member of a party of 4 we were collected at the Riad promptly by Ya Ya. (Earlier e-mail communication with Adil was excellent).
The day was blessed with lovely weather and we toured the 3 valleys stopping off for fresh orange juice, a visit to the Argan oil factory, Berber market, stopping-points for photographs and and of course the wonderful lunch. The salad was divine and the tagine was scrumptious. The meal was the best we had in Marrakech. The lady was very warm and friendly and was a lovely hostess. Ya Ya was excellent with his knowledge of the area and he distributed the stationery and other gifts to the excited children with fairness. All in all it was a wonderful day and one to remember.
Thank-you Ya Ya, the lovely Berber lady who cooked the meal, and Adil for arranging the tour.
